Positive - the campus close is to home, I've been able to meet new friends
Negative - lecturers are hard to contact for help. This could be better addressed.

My advice to future students is: Don’t study unless you are ready. You have to be ready to apply yourself fully. It’s better to get life experience beforehand and find out who you are and what you want before studying

Love the amount of hands on work we get to do. We are constantly placed in situations that allow us to understand how the class is run, and we are offered heaps of opportunities to learn to teach the classes as well.

My advice to future students is: Learning how to teach a class is a great insight into the way you were taught during school, absolutely would recommend

Positives: Very friendly community with all the support a person could need

Negatives: Online communication is hard with Tutors and Lecturers. Only real time to talk is face-to-face, which is only once or twice a week

My advice to future students is: Just enjoy it. Uni is a great time to enjoy life and be apart of new experiences. Take everything in and have fun
